    This really caught my attention, I'm loving all the texture. Are there any other BM Lion Maru sculpts?

    Yep, the crazy textures are what i love the most about BM :D

    To be honest, i have no idea if they have done any other Lion Maru enemies . . . i bought this one kind of randomly.
    There is an unpainted version and a yellow colorway. The unpainted was on Mandarake a while ago.

    Here's a blurry pic of the yellow version:

    Wow Moog, the Denbonaba looks amazing! I may have to track one down myself. Fantastic pics also.

    What other information are you looking for exactly? I think is pretty much all there.

    It was interesting that I could not find any other episode references, or photos of the sculpt besides Moog's & plastichunter's. This stuff is often very obscure. Your right! Its pretty much all there.

    Ah okay, well as far as I know Debonoba was actually in several episodes of Lion Maru, starting with an appearance in Ep. 8. He was actually voiced by a few different actors. Here is another colour pic of him in his suit (not great res I am afraid), and one of the cool cutaway kaiju graphics.



    As for the toy, I am not sure about the yellow, which was a Medicom exclusive I believe, but I know Bearmodel also released the green version in an unpainted figure.

    Yeah, i found most of that when i googled the kanji . . . thanks for the extra detective work.
    The fact he is called alter-ego is a bit confusing too. Who's alter-ego is he?

    Here's a few extra pics i took . . . i dont think my light-box shows-off darker figures that well.
    These colours are more accurate :)

    Excellent figures man. Glad you were able to score them. I had to pass on these for lack of funds, but boy, there are great fun. Taro has got some of the funkiest kaiju characters, and Bearmodel is a perfect match to seem them realised as toys.

    That is a really nice Gigan, great score! I like the extra textures in the arms and legs. And the 'folding' really captures that great rubber suit character. All around a very quality sculpt.

    Ha, he Really does pull off the "turbo chicken" look best out of most Gigan sculpts out there. I can totally see him tearing up the countryside in a Chicken Run sequel :lol:

    Great figure, Moog 8)

    ^^ Thanks peeps, its certainly a toy i underestimated until i got it in-hand . . . . and here's another one that landed this week.
    I was beginning to think I'd never score a BM Bullton, but then up popped this un-bagged beauty.

    Its got a few paint rubs but i dont care. It still looks great.
    I'm starting to really enjoy bulky non-humanoid figures recently . . . .

    Moog, total score!
    I have the white unpaitned bulleton that came out in an early oughts luckybag.
    Its a fantastic sculpt if something of a sofubi white elephant. However I love it dearly who knew a rock could have such charm nice one!

    I've been searching for this blinged-up bad-bwoy, for a fair price, for quite a while . . . . . . finally scored him!
    Very happy :D
